Constructed in 1893, the Sankyo Soko rice storehouses in Sakata were used exclusively to store rice. Of the twelve original storehouses, nine are still in use today. The others have been renovated into the Shonai Rice Museum and Sakata Yume no Kura. The museum presents information about Shonai rice, including the history of rice cultivation, and shows farm tools and other everyday items used long ago. Protected from the sun and seasonal winds by a row of majestic zelkova trees, the storehouses have become a symbol of the city of Sakata.
